about

THICK Brooklyn, New York

Born from the DIY/all-ages scene in New York, THICK make music with the raw defiance of punk and addictive melodies of pop, punchy and catchy and wildly tongue-in-cheek. With their live show typically spawning a mosh pit described by Stereogum as “more like an aggressive hug,” the Brooklyn-based trio brings an unchecked intimacy while building a deep and unshakable solidarity with the audience. ... more

Track Name: 5 Years Behind
Always 5 years, always 5 years
Always 5 years behind
Everybody’s expectations
That they have of my life
Keep on swimming, keep on swimming
Just to keep my head up
My heart is heavy like my body

I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)
I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)

Always 5 years, always 5 years
Always 5 years behind
Slowly veering off the path that they paved for my life
Keep on pushing, keep on pushing
Just to keep myself up
My heart is heavy like my body

I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)
I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)

I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)
I wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed
If I didn’t let time take control (of me)

I keep on trying (try to maintain control)
I keep on trying (keep my feet on the ground)
I keep on trying (try to break through this fall)
I keep on trying (try not to let it all go)
I keep on trying (try to maintain control)
I keep on trying (keep my feet on the ground)
I keep on trying (try to break through this fall)
I keep on trying (try not to let it all go)
Track Name: Bumming Me Out
Never knew I’d be so tired
Fighting for what I believe
Try to take it all in stride
Sometimes it just feels like

Everything that I see, bumming me out
Everything that I read, wearing me down
Everyone that I see is freaking me out
Everything that I read is wearing me down

Straining hard to find the light
Wishing you would take my side
Prop me up in spite of pride
Your wide awake but you can’t see

Everything that I see, bumming me out
Everything that I read, wearing me down
Everyone that I see is freaking me out
Everything that I read is wearing me down

Everything that I see, bumming me out
Everything that I read, wearing me down
Anxiety gets the best of me but it won’t break me down
Everything that I read is bumming me out
